Nanook of the North

Wacław Zimpel Maja S. K. Ratkje

A duet made up of Stefan Wesołowski and Piotr Kaliński, whom audiences may recognize from their solo performances at previous festival editions. The former, who has a neoclassical background, has an album to his credit called Rite of the End and he was also behind the soundtrack to Floating Skyscrapers. The latter is known as a producer and DJ who performs under the pseudonym Hatti Vatti. On their album, recorded in Iceland, in a new soundtrack to Robert J. Flaherty's nearly 100-year-old documentary Nanook of the North, Wesołowski and Kaliński create a coherent, credible musical world, a beautiful and frigid place that is both inviting and unsettling at the same time.
